Xavi nets lottery jackpot

Former Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez has scooped €227k after winning the Doha Bank lottery jackpot for June.

Currently at Al Sadd, the 37-year-old spoke of an ‘unexpected but welcome surprise’ after netting the jackpot.

“Winning the QAR 1 million cash prize was an unexpected but welcome surprise,” Xavi is quoted by ESPN as telling the Doha Bank website.

“I had opened my account in Doha Bank in December 2016, as I had taken interest in the Al Dana program after hearing about how Doha Bank encourages their customers to save money, and get a chance to become Millionaires, as well as the opportunity to win other cash prizes.”
